Rescuers using cranes and blow torches cut through the wreckage of two trains Friday, prying corpses trapped in the mangled debris of India's deadliest rail disaster in three years.

So far, 205 bodies have been pulled from the wreck in the wheat-trading town of Khanna in the northwestern state of Punjab. Ten more passengers are feared dead in the debris, said S.P. Mehta of Indian Railways.

The Calcutta-bound Sealdah Express collided with cars that had uncoupled from the Frontier Mail en route from New Delhi and toppled into the path of the oncoming train on a parallel track Thursday.
